Two passengers died when a small plane crashed onto a South Florida highway, in the United States on Friday afternoon.
According to CBS, the Collier County Sheriff’s Office said three people were able to exit the plane, said Robin King, a spokesperson for the Naples Airport.
The Federal Aviation Administration said there were five passengers aboard the flight.
The FAA confirmed that a Bombardier Challenger 600 carrying five people crashed on the highway near the city of Naples at about 3:15 p.m.
Video footage taken by a witness shows the aircraft burst into flames and a plume of smoke.
“Had a plane just land RIGHT in front of us on I-75,” the witness said after posting the video on social media.
Southbound lanes on Interstate 75 were closed at mile marker 111, and northbound lanes are closed at the 105-mile markers, the sheriff’s office said. The department is helping with traffic and closures.
The FAA and National Transportation Safety Board will investigate, the FAA said
